When you stop and think about it, there's really very little in the average day that makes it stand out as memorable.
Here's an example: what was the highlight of your day three days ago? Unless the timing works out perfectly and you just got hitched, chances are it's not that easy to remember.
But that's the way it has to be. By definition if everything was epic, nothing would be epic.
Except for us. We're special. Because we bet you remember everything you've ever bought from us and if you don't, please feel free to refresh your memory with today's latest deals.
Catherine Marshall Wines is an Independent Wine Company producing hand-crafted, premium wines in the Elgin Valley along the Cape South Coast. The vines are grown in cool climate conditions, produce intense, bright, pure and fresh wines of character. Catherine Marshall is the first eponymous range in South Africa to be released by a woman winemaker.
Chenin Blanc 100%, Elgin & Stellenbosch
White peach top notes with fleshy ripe nectarines on the core and crisp green apple acidity fans out the tail on the finish. A rich, mid-palate of lanoline adds depth and complexity to the wet granite stone texture.
To apply a classic, cool and restrained approach to a generally accepted warmer climate variety prevalent in most of South Africa. The thought is to harmoniously balance the fresh backbone of laser‐like acidity with a ripe, broad-spectrum array of fruit.
Grapes were selected from two vineyards‐ one in Elgin on Bokkeveld Shales and Hutton soils in Stellenbosch. Elgin vines were vertically shoot positioned on a five-wire fence system planted 2.2m x 1.2m apart on south and south-east-facing slopes to enhance more even budburst and resultant ripening. The vines in Stellenbosch were from old bush vines with low to moderate yields as they are old vines (about 47 years old) Production averaged at 6‐8 tons per hectare from Elgin vines and low yields of 4‐5 tons per hectare on the Stellenbosch site. Harvesting took place in Elgin in March and mid‐February in Stellenbosch.
Both cluster and berry sorting commenced prior to being partially crushed. The mash was pressed in a pneumatic bag press where both free run and pressed fractions were treated oxidatively with minimal chemical additives. The juice was settled cold for two days and then 45% was decanted to old 225-litre French casks, 50 and the remaining 5% was fermented cold in stainless steel with no commercial yeast strain innoculated. The wine has not been through secondary malolactic fermentation and matured for 9 months after which the different components were consolidated. The wine was lightly filtered to bottle and bottle matured for 11 months prior to release.
Seared Cape salmon, Scallops, Mussels with saffron; fragrantly spiced white meat and Sushi.
The wine is approachable in its primary stage with fresh, bright fruit aromatics and may age well for five to eight years under optimal cellar conditions. Primary white peach and fresh apple fruit aromatics may evolve into nutty, spicy baked apple and cardamom notes.

Never have to wait at home all day for your parcel or miss a delivery again: Pargo delivers your parcels to a store near you.
Having partnered with hundreds of stores in South Africa, there's (almost) always a Pick-up Point near you: often with opening hours of up to 15 hours per day - some (like fuel stations) are even open 24/7!
Why not give it a try today?
Well, because we also have to pay for delivery. And that money needs to come from somewhere.
Shipping costs money and we don't want to go bankrupt.
We have debated the merits of offering free shipping at length but the reality is that – without some magic source of free cash – the only place that money can come from is from our customers.
That leaves us with two options: hide it in the price of the product, or show it. We decided to be transparent and show it. This lets us cut our prices to the bare minimum and show you the best possible savings.
If we had incorporated the shipping cost into the price of an item, you’d pay double whenever you order more than one item but, in reality, the cost of shipping doesn’t necessarily go up.
By the way: the actual shipping charge you pay is a best-effort approximation of what shipping is going to cost us. As a result, ordering a 3kg item to Sandton or Cape Town may work out cheaper than a 75g iPhone cover to Springbok. Don’t blame us; blame the vast expanse that is our beautiful South Africa.
We'd love to offer free shipping. But we can't, because that means turning our company into a loss-making enterprise.
We rarely hold stock. Our partners deliver exactly what we need, after a deal has run. That way we keep our costs down, prices low and everybody (including you) happy.
We're not like other online shops with a fixed catalogue and tons of stock. Instead, most of our products never come back to our website again. That’s how we want it, as it keeps us fresh and unpredictable (win #1).
So, after you (and lots of others) have placed your orders, we go to our suppliers and place a massive, single order. Our suppliers love this, as it keeps things simple and moving along smoothly. Happy suppliers equal low prices (win #2).
Since we don’t hold stock, we can work with a cheaper, medium-sized warehouse, instead of a mega-warehouse (win #3) and we’re saving lots on not needing any processes involved in handling and returning unsold stock, allowing us to offer better deals (win #4).
The practice of not holding stock is one of the core principles behind OneDayOnly’s success. That, and our sparkling personalities of course.
